The Metlakatla “B” team withstood a tight back-and-forth contest with Hoonah “B” during Sunday’s opening Gold Medal game for both teams.
Hoonah’s Travis Dybdahl scored a game-high 36 points but his last second three-pointer to tie the game fell short and Metlakatla advanced to tonight’s 7:30 p.m. winner’s bracket game against the winner of Sunday’s late game between Yakutat and Hydaburg. That outcome saw Hydaburg stop Yakutat 93-81.
Metlakatla was led by Jace Scudaro’s 26 points, Jason 16 points, George Peratrovich 15, Shane Martinez 14, and Aaron Severson eight as the top four teams scorers. Hoonah’s DJ Lindstrom added 16, Anthony Lindoff 14 and James Wilson 12.
Hoonah falls into Tuesday’s 7:30 p.m. elimination “B” bracket game against Yakutat.
